Welcome to the ISB Home Page!

HELLO, and thank you for visiting the ISB web site! My name is Dean Davis. I’m the Director of Come Let Us Reason, a Bible teaching ministry focusing on apologetics and the biblical worldview. After four years of prayerful research, reflection, writing, and re-rewriting, I now have the pleasure of seeing a dream come true—the publication of a layman’s book on cosmology entitled In Search of the Beginning: A Seeker’s Journey to the Origin of the Universe, Life, and Man. Here are a few reasons why I hope you will find it interesting.

It is written especially for seekers. While ISB will be of great interest to Christians, I have written it especially for seekers—people who are curious about the spiritual as well as scientific dimensions of cosmology. Are you a naturalist who is having doubts about a godless, self-created universe? Are you inclined towards one of the classical Eastern religions, or to New Age evolutionism? Are you curious about Judeo-Christian perspectives, but unfamiliar with the Bible? This is the book for you.

It is philosophically comprehensive. Desiring to engage seekers of every kind, I have tried to make ISB philosophically comprehensive. Accordingly, the book even-handedly examines naturalistic, pantheistic, and theistic views of the beginning. Since I myself practiced Buddhism for several of years, I was especially eager to think with seekers involved in Hinduism, Buddhism, and the New Age Movement. The resulting chapter on pantheistic cosmology is, I think, a unique contribution to creationist literature.

It is readable. I have gone to great lengths to see that ISB is well-organized, well-written, informative, non-technical, and above all, interesting. To this end I have included a number of helpful charts and diagrams, a good bit of personal testimony, lots of thought-provoking quotations, and even a few poems and inspirational hymns. Seekers may, at points, find ISB challenging, but I trust they will not find it inaccessible or boring.

It makes a case for radical geocentricity. The revised version of ISB takes a close look at the case for radical cosmic geocentricity—the idea that the Earth sits immovable at the center of a revolving universe. This was, of course, the view of the medieval Church, and also of the early Protestant reformers. Though eclipsed for centuries by modern heliocentric and acentric cosmologies, fresh theoretical insights and empirical observations have made radical geocentricity a viable model once again. ISB surveys the evidence, both biblical and scientific, letting the reader draw his own conclusions. Like the question of the age of the universe, this is a fascinating theme, one that may well launch the next round in the Great Debate about origins. Needless to say, if radical geocentricity should prevail, it would definitely put the Earth—and the God who created it—on the map in a whole new way!

I hope you’ll enjoy the sample pages on this site. Also, please feel free to contact me with your thoughts or questions. May God bless you richly as you seek his truth about the beginning, and about the One who began it all! — Dean
